    • Visiting Kona for Ironman Oct 2017

      Kailua-Kona Jan 8, 2017 at 1:39 AM

      We live in Perth W.Australia and plan to visit Kona for the Ironman in October (as spectator only) and plan to be there for 2-3 weeks. We regularly spectate at 70.3s and full Ironmans in Australia/Asia, great to watch.

      Can anyone please suggest/recommend good location to stay (and possible condos/hotels/airB&B) within easy reach of start and transitions.

      Many thanks. Penny

      Hey I was wondering if anyone knows of any cabin rentals in the Poconos or near. I'm not looking to go skiing, just horseback riding and just want that country feel! I've never been there but only live about an hour and half away. I just keep getting sponsored places when searching.. And nothing seems suitable

    • Long term parking in Laredo, then taxi to Quetzalcoatl Airport in Nuevo Laredo

      Laredo Dec 25, 2016 at 7:23 PM

      I'm searching for information on long term parking in Laredo, Tx near the border. Having a hard time finding information on where to park and how much it's likely to cost. Surely someone has done it! Can you give me some info?

      Need to take a taxi from the border to Quetzalcoatl Airport (Nuevo Laredo International). Is that do-able?

      Final question: any idea how long this likely to take? I've got a flight out from Nuevo Laredo International late afternoon and don't know exactly how to plan it, timewise.

      Thank you so much for anything you can tell me!

Is it advisable to take the ferry back and forth to see (walk/ taxi) some of the mainland sites? Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, perhaps, Balboa Park (Zoo), etc.? How about if we want dinner on the mainland? Or should we drive to most places? Itinerary not set yet.

      Between Tallahassee Florida and Summerville SC

      United States of America Jan 8, 2017 at 5:57 PM

      I have a gap of about 4 days between my grandson's graduation in Tallahassee on Friday or Saturday and my granddaughter's wedding in Summerville SC on the following Saturday. Where can I go and stay for four days that is somewhat between Tallahassee and Summerville. I thought of Jekyll Island, St. Simons' Island, or St. Augustine, but I have been to all those places a couple of times. I've also stayed in Hilton Head for a week (hated it), and visited Savannah. I'd rather be in a small place than a big city.

    • Specific Location

      Los Angeles Jan 6, 2017 at 6:48 AM

      Hi. I posted another question about where to stay but am now more specific with areas. We will be going to Universal one day, Warner Brothers tour, doing things near Hollywood Blvd area, and then exploring other tourist things.

      Which area/hotel is better...near Universal City (Studio City hotel) or Hollywood Blvd (Hollywood Celebrity hotel), near but off Hollywood Blvd a bit (Days Inn) or Thai Town (Dixie Hotel)? We will have a car but am thinking one of those.
      Have narrowed it down to one of those based on budget and not being too far from Universal and Hollywood Blvd area. We have Hollywood Celebrity booked (but we can cancel).

    • Traveling to Door County by plane from NC

      Door Creek Jan 3, 2017 at 12:30 PM

      Hello. In August of 2017 we will be traveling from Raleigh Durham Airport, NC to Clark Lake in Door County, WI. We are frequent Southwest Airlines fliers, so we would like to use our Southwest earned miles, but are not sure of the best airport to fly to. We know we will be renting a car to reach Door County from whatever airline we select. We are thinking Green Bay or Milwaukee, but are not sure whether SWA travels to Green Bay, or if the difference in cost would make it more economical to drive a rental from Milwaukee. Looks like a 2 1/2 hr drive from there to Door county. Thanks in advance for any help

      PHX Car Rental transfers, eating and shopping.

      Phoenix Dec 28, 2016 at 2:32 AM

      i am flying out of Phoenix which is an airport I've not been through previously. Can anyone advise ease of transfer from dropping off (Alamo) car hire and navigating through to Departures Terminal 3? I think it may involve a shuttle - if so how regularly do they run (6:30 - 7:30 am. Travelling alone so no one to share luggage humping with. Potentially I could check in car the night previous and use an airport hotel (would need transfer for that though?) but hoping that traffic will be reasonable at that hour in the morning on a Wednesday even if I had to navigate short stretch of I10 over Salt River? Also too early for breakfast at hotel so any suggestions in Terminal? Guessing that the shopping will be the usual gift oriented and duty free goodies - or should I save back some dollars - wishful thinking that I'll have any!

      Figured I had better ask this now, as can't later. My husband and I generally travel with a 5-th wheel trailer, but are considering maybe trying out staying in a condo, apartment, house, etc. short term instead in the coming years. This would be for a 2 - 3 week stay in the US. So far I have found HomeAway and VRBO as possible helpful sources. I would appreciate any advice as to if these are the best ones, and/or are there others that are also valuable sources.

    • Rental Car GPS replacement

      United States of America Jan 12, 2017 at 8:09 AM

      We will rent a car in fall 2017 in the USA for about 3 Weeks.

      I noticed that all the rental companies want to charge arount 150-500$ for a Navigation System. This is really much, compared to the 1500$ rental cost!!

      They will use these standart "window mount" navigation devices i guess.
      We don't want to pay that much, so i was looking for options.

      Would you reccomend buying a GPS in an eletronic store?
      I saw a lot of them for like 80-120$, and if you once have one, you can use it on all your future travels in us

      Since where not from us, a device that tells us the current speed limit would be nice!:)

      I don't know much about Hawaii. Just know they have great coffee and a great place to learn to surf.

      Does anyone know of a great hotel near the waters with a nice beach that's also near activities like surfing, snorkelling, hiking, kayaking? We like the adventure type of vacations.

    • airtrain and E line subway at rush hour

      New York City Jan 2, 2017 at 8:06 AM

      Our flight from London will arrive into JFK at 4pm. I'm assuming clearing immigration/customs/collecting bags etc will take about an hour or so, meaning we will be trying to leave the airport at rush hour. Our hotel is on 42nd street and only 2 mins walk from Port authority bus station on 42nd so I was planning on getting the airtrain to Jamaica and then getting on the E line subway to 42nd street. Does this sound like a bad idea at rush hour as we will also be travelling with suitcases? There's only 2 of us and I don't want to spend a fortune on transfers, and i'm also aware that the shared transfer vans (go airlink etc) don't have a good reputation, which is why i'm leaning more towards the airtrain/subway at the moment.

      Any advice would be appreciated :-)

      United States of America Jan 20, 2017 at 6:03 AM

      Hello Everyone,

      Thank you very much for your feedback back in 2015 regarding west coast travel advice. My trip to USA was memorable and its because of your feedback.

      Now I will be going to the east coast this year. My tentative travel date is from 26 May - 18 June. I wish to see the east coast. I don't want this trip to be a hectic one so I want to see important places and spend some time in New York just taking it easy. I know this sounds a little vague because you may ask how many days you want to spend where and so on. But I want you to guide me here as you know how many days (approx) I would have in hand. The last few days I want to do some shopping.

      I think I should at least go to Boston, New York, DC and Niagara falls. I also wish to visit few good universities there as I wish to pursue a masters in the futue.

      Your advice will be appreciated.

      Thank you.

      Cheers,
      GR

    • How many days in each place Yellowstone - SLC - Bryce Canyon - Zion NP - LV

      Yellowstone National Park Jun 9, 2016 at 10:30 AM

      I've planned my first time visit to the Mid-West with two kids (11 and 8) in the end of June (booked hotels and air tickets) and then I learned I can extend my trip for 3 more days, totaling 13 days, 12 nights. Here is my updated itinerary:

      Day 1: fly to Jackson Hole
      Day 2: visit Grand Teton, stay at Grant Village
      Day 3: visit Yellowstone, stay at Old Faithful Snow Lodge
      Day 4: visit Yellowstone, stay at Canyon Village
      Day 5: visit Yellowstone, stay at Canyon Village
      Day 6: leave Yellowstone, visit SLC, stay at SLC
      Day 7: leave SLC, visit Bryce Canyon, stay at Ruby's inn
      Day 8: leave Bryce Canyon, visit Zion NP, stay at Springdale
      Day 9: visit Zion NP, stay at Springdale
      Day 10: leave Zion, stay in Vegas
      Day 11: visit Vegas
      Day 12: visit Vegas
      Day 13: fly back

      We love outdoor hiking and wild life watching, but we cannot do long hikes, especially not in 90 degree days, and hiking everyday may be exhausting and boring to the kids. It may be fun to watch some shows in Vegas but I don't know if we are staying too long in a desert city during the hottest time. Any advice or suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

      Yellowstone National Park Dec 23, 2015 at 5:46 AM

      We are trying to decide on our upcoming vacation and every time we think we got it the answer changes for one of us. It is my wife, my 2 year old son, and myself on the trip. It will take place this summer and here are the options we are looking at:

      Option 1: Yellowstone and other National Parks along the way (starting in TX). We love National Parks and already at a young age my son loves the outdoors.

      Option 2: Disney World, New Orleans and other stops along the way (starting in TX). Mickey has become a staple in the house right now so, this makes sense because he would be free for a lot of it and we can make other stops along the way.

      Option 3: Disneyland, Yosemite and other stops (starting in TX). See option 2 but add probably a lot more stops along the way.

      Please help because we want a great trip not just for us but for our little boy as well, even though he may not remember everything (or anything) the look on his face will say enough and the pictures and video we take will last a life time.

    • suggested route and accommodations

      Yellowstone National Park May 31, 2015 at 2:15 AM

      Hi, VTers! We have suddenly decided to visit this wonderful area and don't have a lot of time to plan. Hopefully you can guide us in the right direction!

      We're planning on arriving at Billings Airport around noon on June 5 and departing from Billings in the early evening of June 9. We are set on seeing the highligts of Yellowstone (Upper and Lower Terraces, Fort Yellowstone, Specimen Ridge, Lamar Valley, Hayden Valley, swimming in Boiling River, South Rim Trail, Grand Canyon, Mud Volcano, Yellowstone Lake, Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring, Fountain Paint Pots and Artists Paintpots. Any other suggestions, or deletions?), and also seeing Grand Teton. The plan is to travel around Yellowstone, and stay in the area that is close to where we will end for the day.

      From my preliminary research, I've come up with a rough itinerary. Please let me know what your thoughts are:

      June 5: arrive in Billings, drive 2 hours into Yellowstone. Do Mammoth Country. Sleep in Gardiner, West Yellowstone or Big Sky. I think Gardiner is a better option, given it's proximity to Mammoth Country?

      June 6: do west side of Yellowstone (whatever that means. I think it would include Madison, Geyser Country, and Grant? I just don't have a good grasp on the route yet). Not sure where to stay for the night here. To me, West Thumb or around Old Faithful would be the obvious choice to spend the night, but all accommodations are completely booked up (I know, accommodations for Yellowstone in general must be booked way in advance. However, we just decided on this trip yesterday, sigh). Suggestions on where to stay? Should we backtrack to West Yellowstone?

      June 7: half day to finish what we couldn't do on the west side of Yellowstone. Spend remainder of the day on the west side of Grand Teton. Sleep in Teton Village or Jackson Hole.

      June 8: do east side of Grand Teton. I think we'll be staying in Colter Bay Village, but if you have any other suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated!

      June 8: do West side of Yellowstone (again, whatever that means. I think it's Canyon Country and Lake Country). I can't quite figure out where to stay on the west side of Yellowstone. Any suggestions?

      June 9: do Roosevelt Country and northeast side of Yellowstone. And then we'll have to catch our flight in Billings at 5:30pm.

      Some specifics about us: we will be renting a car so have that flexibility; we are fit and enjoy hiking. However, our main purpose of this trip is to see the sights (ie. we don't want to spend the whole day on one hike, even though I know there are an abundance of wonderful trails); it will just be my boyfriend and I (ie. no kids or parents to drag along); our philosophy is to spend less time at the hotel, but we need our own bathroom (budget accommodations in the $150 is our style. However, beggars can't be choosers at this point); we have never been to this area. Any other info you need to assist us?

      I saw a suggestion to use West Yellowstone as a base, and do day trips from there. Your thoughts on this? I know Yellowstone is huge, but it looks like on a map that it may be feasible.

      I have also seen suggestions to totally skip the Mammoth area. Is Mammoth not really worth it for first time Yellowstoners? There seem to be a lot of suggested sights to see in the area.

      Nothing has been booked yet, and we may decide to drive from Vancouver, BC (a long 14 hour drive which would truncate our itinerary within Yellowstone :( ). However, I'm really leaning towards flying, and hopefully my boyfriend will agree to it.

      Thank you in advance for reading this, and pointing us in the right direction!

      1- are there any quick places we should hit in our road trip. our plan is to spend 5 - 6 days in and around Yellowstone and 4 - 5 days of driving.
      2- Pls tell if it is ok to stay put at one place(jackson, code or west entrance(how about a KOA)) or any room/lodge in the Park would be best ?
      3- Or I should book stay at different places and keep moving ? I have a tent too but does it need a lot of measures and prep to camp in yellowstone ?
      4- What are the 'must-do's and 'must-see's in yellowston/teton or the places nearby in 5 days.
      as we are driving a long way, want to make the most out of our trip. any special clothing/wear/gear to bring except normal summer wear/hiking shoes etc.

      Thanks
      AG

    • Transportation inside YellowstoneNP

      Yellowstone National Park Mar 24, 2015 at 7:34 AM

      Does YellowstoneNP provide transportation from site to site (shuttle bus, etc)? We will be staying in a 29.5 ft RV and don't want to disconnect and maneuver it around the park each day.

    • Bus services between Denver and Lander

      Is there a bus service between Denver CO and Lander WY? My son's flying into Denver tomorrow (Sat 07 Mar 15) to attend a course in Lander next week, but has only recently passed his driving test (and not in the US) and would prefer not to drive if possible.

    • itinary review requested:)

      Yellowstone National Park Feb 18, 2015 at 4:55 PM

      hello we are planning a road trip at the end of july 2015 and we would liek to have other travellers input on our itinary if that could be possible. it would be from uly 26 to july 30th...

      our itinary so far would be:

      day 1: SLC- Bonnevile salt flats + visit of SLC (seriously in need of cues and tips about this one as we did not find a lot of information about what to do in SLC for fun yet)
      day 2= leave extra early from SLC to grand teton NP, through soda spring Idaho and Jackson wyoming (probably a stop in Jackson for lunch), then drive to mormon row, jenny's lake surrounding or the likes to visit as much as possible during this day. Is signal mountain drive up the hill for the view is worth the time to go there?... probably camping in signal mountain campground but as no reservation is possible we will have to rely on luck for this one.
      day3=signal mountain campground (hopefully) to canyon village Yellowstone. We are planning on leaving extra early in the morning and to see attractions in YNP's south loop such as grand faithfull, rainbow lake and the likes, then canyon village campground for the night.
      day 4= visit of the yellowstone falls and canyon then off to billings montana through cody wyoming ( stop there for lunch and visit the old row town.
      day 5= leaving billings to home.

      question are: should we allow more time at one or other step of this trip? do we miss something very un-missable and is it doable in this time frame? every tips, comments or precisions are welcomed

      Looking to plan a short weekend visiting Yellowstone... is it possible?

      Yellowstone National Park Jan 26, 2015 at 5:48 PM

      We are looking to visit Yellowstone but only have limited availability such as a 4day/3 night stay during early March or early April..... would this be possible or not enough time to see/ do enough? If possible are there any suggestions on inexpensive/ centrally located hotels you would recommend? All input is appreciated, Thank you!

    • What to see at Yellowstone and Grand Teton N.P.?

      Yellowstone National Park Jan 20, 2015 at 10:20 AM

      My wife and I and our six year old granddaughter will be visiting both Yellowstone and Grand Teton N.P. the end of July. I want to thank all of the folks who sent me tips on packing for this trip.
      My next question deals with what to see and how to do it. We know virtually nothing about the parks other than they are gorgeous. Our trip will be seven (7) days; however, two of those will be travel days to and from San Diego. Essentially, we will have five (5) full days. We were wondering how best to divide these five days. Are there guided tours? We would prefer these as we don't want to wander around wasting a lot of time especially since we do not know where we are going. If there are Guided Tours, what approximately will the fees be? Our plan is to hopefully take a guided tour in each of the parks for a full day each, or perhaps three of the five days. We would then have two extra days to revisit some of the areas. Does this sound like a good plan? We would welcome any or all suggestions as to which Guided Tours to take and what places we should not miss and how to access them. We will have a rental car; however, I would prefer not to use it unless it was for revisit purposes. Thanks.

      Three days itenary and some logistic questions

      Yellowstone National Park Jan 19, 2015 at 10:22 PM

      We'll be coming to Yellowstone for three days in end of May, and already booked one night in Great Teton and two - in Western Yellowstone.
      Usually we rent a small car - for two it's enough, and easier to park (we'll be coming from SF through LA and then some national parks like Great Canyon, Bryce, Antelope. So will the small car (not 4x4) be enough?
      Can you also give me some tips about the itenary.
      I'm thinking about one day near lake and east part, then one day - Old Faithful and around. What else?

      We will be passing through the Grand Tetons on an extended west trip, and was looking for some recommendations on some outdoor things to do for two days. We would be up for a couple of short hikes. Does anyone have any other recommendations on enjoying the outdoors while in the area?

      Thanks in advance!
